Who’s singing Christmas carols already this year? I feel like the holiday season is whipping by this year, it’s hard to believe next week is Thanksgiving and I’m already finalizing my gift lists and holiday party plans. Every year I give friends and long distance family food gifts and this year I’m going back to an old favorite, Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls. (Also called Buckeye Balls!) This is my favorite recipe for this classic…it never turns out dry like some other versions, and they always disappear fast when I make them!
I make these super easy by buying dipping chocolate that I can melt in the container. One less dish to clean up! Simply cream the sugar, peanut butter and butter together, chill, then dip and chill again. Easy peasy peanut butter balls in just minutes (plus chill time)!
I guarantee anyone on your list would love to have these Buckeye Balls! Try them and let me know what you think in the comments!Print
